KUALA TERENGGANU, July 12 (Bernama) -- The haj arrangements for pilgrims from the east coast will be managed by TH Hotel & Convention Centre, one km from the Sultan Mahmud Airport here, starting this year.

Hotel general manager Malizan Zakaria said the arrangements would include health screening and immigration clearance before the pilgrims leave for the Holy Land from Sept 17 until Sept 26.

He said the RM75 million hotel was divided into two parts, one for haj arrangement and another opened to guests as a normal hotel.

Pilgrims from Kelantan and Pahang, who are leaving on morning flights, will be housed at the 182-room hotel which was Syariah compliance, he told reporters here today.

Malizan said the four-star hotel rate was RM180 per night with Imsak meals for two persons during Ramadan and RM199 from September.

During Ramadan, it serves 'kibas' and 'nasi mandi' barbeque from West Asia for the breaking of fast.
